I don't think he's a douche, but in saying what he said he was way off base;

So next time you wonder why PC Gaming is getting the short end of the stick, remember how much income developers/publishers actually make off the platform.
16% for PC (minus MMO's and possible digital Distribution) vs 60% for 360, Wii, PS3, PS2, DS, PSP.

Lets add MMO's to PC then compare to consoles individually why don't we? I'll make a rough guess at which consoles got what share of the percentages.

PC = 24%
Wii = 14%
DS = 14%
360 = 12%
PS3 = 11%
PSP = 6%
PS2 = 3%

Granted, the big multiplatform games do not usually sell as well on PC, we know this. Still, this data shows that as a platform, PC does have the most revenue even if we know the big cross-platform games don't sell as well. Conclusion, Magus' claim is wrong and his PC bashing thread has backfired on him.

I laugh at how butthurt you PC elitist queers are about this. It was a survey. A survey is generally useless. If they surveyed another 13,000 it could be 100% on consoles... who freaking knows. Stop getting so butt hurt about it and keep pirating your games because "omgz, teh devz want moniez!"

Yeah okay, but it's alright to use the survey results to say bad things about PC though. Even if your conclusion is flawed because of misreading the data. Yep, I see why defending such statements makes someone a butthurt PC elitist queer. Thanks for the insightful insults, you've added a lot to the discussion.

I am not using the results as a fact. Stop being so butthurt about it. Most developers get tired of you elitists douchebags so they decide to just stick to console because console gamers appreciate GAMEPLAY.

From reading Mr Hunt's posts, I have come to the conclusion that the "H" should be replaced with a "C" and you will have a far more accurate title for the gentleman. Idiocy abounds everywhere.

Clever one. You know you could have just said my first name was Mike. So... Mike Hunt. But you aren't bright enough for that. Guess your little elitist mind can't grasp anything not laid out directly for you.

No, as then that would imply that you are my c*nt. I am not a woman, but then maybe I'm not bright enough to know what I am. You are a pretty obnoxious person on these boards to be honest. Are you actually this way in real life? Also saying to a gamer that games on PCs that I can't grasp anything laid out directly for me seems quite ironic when you consider the whole idea that console gaming is meant to be so much more hassle free in comparison to PC gaming. Just to clear up your prejudice, I never stated anything that could lead you to draw the conclusion that I am elitist, have a smaller that average mind, lack oppose-able thumbs or any combination of said accusations. I own 3 consoles and a PC, I game on all of them. I just don't like BS and people like you.

Lol. Rich. My prejudice? Against what? Retarded PC elitists who only cry about EVERYTHING? Wahh this game requires an internet connection in the year 2010. WAHH this doesn't look like Crysis but has actual gameplay that is enjoyable. WAHHH I can't go prone in AVP. WAHHHH the HUD is too big. WAHHH the HUD is too small. WAHHH the HUD is too perfect. WAHHH WAHHH WAHHH. PC elitists need to stop crying. I am not prejudiced against PC elitists only, I also hate console elitists. I am probably 50/50 with my PS3 and PC because each one has some great games. But some of you people cry so freaking much. You know which game I have had the most fun with on my PC this year? Mount and Blade: Warband. That game looks like garbage from 1995 basically but the gameplay is extremely fun and that is what GAMERS should give a crap about.
